Clinical Practice Session

Making Nephrology an On-Study Specialty: Challenges and Opportunities

November 17, 2016 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: W183C

Session Description

This session describes pathways that could result in a majority of patients with kidney diseases being involved in clinical research. Special emphasis is placed on raising patient awareness of clinical research and on increasing patient recruitment. The discussion also focuses on developing and optimizing clinical trial infrastructure and on using the hemodialysis unit as a hub for clinical research activities. This session's aim is to stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship at multiple levels within the larger kidney community.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. identify the barriers and provide solutions to address the paucity of clinical trials focused on kidney diseases; 2. identify patient and physician perceptions that reduce clinical trial involvement; 3. describe advances in biomarker development that could facilitate kidney clinical trials; 4. describe advances in clinical trial infrastructure and design for nephrology studies; and 5. identify the potential to do clinical research in the dialysis unit itself.

Session Acknowledgements
